Use this Overlooked Skill to Prevent L&D Project Underperformance

Posted by Paul Powell on September 22, 2020

A lack of effective business consulting by all members of an L&D project team can diminish every other success on a project. Your project may deliver excellent instructional design, world-class development, and a high-performing quality plan, schedule, and budget, but if you fail to connect with your client in a way that ensures an excellent client experience from kickoff to post-launch evaluation, you may be overlooking the obvious and missing a critical opportunity to separate yourself from the crowd. Or worse, you may negatively impact your long-term client relationship, opportunities for referrals, reputation, and even revenue associated with repeat business.

Adjusting to the New Normal of Conducting Training Virtually

Posted by Louann Swedberg and Brian Ziemba on April 9, 2020

There are challenges to working remotely—every day. Some colleagues have shared tips about working virtually since we have been doing it for some time.

As we all adjust to the new normal, the recent travel bans and social distancing have made it impossible to conduct in-person training or meetings. We’ve heard from many clients who have had training cancelled and need help reconfiguring for virtual or digital delivery. 

Some organizations are ready to convert in-person training content into an eLearning format, but that can take time, and it won’t provide the same human touch as instructor-led training. If you already have an instructor and content, consider flipping your training into a virtual course. Virtual instructor-led training (VILT) provides a way for people to attend at the same time, benefit from the talents of your facilitator, and still be able to engage by asking questions or discussing in small groups.

The challenge is often in optimizing for virtual delivery and building in ways to keep the human connection strong. Here are some tips for preparing your existing content for virtual delivery:

7 Ideas for Interactive Activities in Your Virtual Training Environment

Posted by Caveo Learning on March 24, 2020

One of the most common mistakes instructional designers make when creating virtual instructor-led training is failing to account for VILT’s high-engagement need.

Because of potential distractions and the feeling of disconnectedness that can come from learners and facilitators being geographically dispersed, designers are wise to treat virtual training similarly to post-lunch classroom training. That is, realize that participants may be sluggish and unenthusiastic, particularly at the outset, and make extra efforts to keep them energized and on task. In general, VILT should include more activity and screen actions than would be appropriate for a comparable training in a traditional classroom setting. Include a physical interaction—typing, speaking, clicking, etc.—at least every 3–5 minutes, and never go more than 90 seconds without some kind of visual engagement.

Don’t Get Lost: A Roadmap for New Curriculum Design

Posted by Ashley Christian on January 23, 2020

Once upon a time, long, long ago…wait…no, this was just last week…I was having a conversation with a client about an emerging need. They were looking for assistance in designing a curriculum to support the learning needs of three roles. They had collected what people were using today and felt they had a pretty good idea of what was needed and wanted to get right to it.

I had a few questions, including:

  • Why is this a need today vs. in the past?
  • Is there something about these roles that is changing or has recently changed?
  • What performance are you looking for as an outcome of people completing this training?
